I was doing some fall cleaning at home today and I found a few pictures with the cast of
Hey Arnold.” Enjoy!
OK…..DISCLAIMER!! I am NOT a trained opera singer at ALL. But I absolutely LOVE opera. I sing all the time in the shower and pretend I am a famous coloratura. In reality, not even close. Tonight was just another night where I was just exhausted and to help myself unwind, I went into my studio and played my favorite opera clips from YouTube at my desk. Except THIS night was slightly different than all the other nights I listen to opera in my studio. Why? Because it dawned on me that I have a STUDIO in my house and I can record myself singing anything I want!!!! So I just went ahead and found an instrumental track from Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino” and recorded of course. And I’m posting it. I just want to share my love of opera with you. I hope you enjoy it for what it is. And the cathedral reverb I put on it!
WITHOUT FURTHER ADO…..ANNDI SINGS….PUCCINI!!!
My boyfriend and I love to play around with songs and music (well, it’s not playing so much for him since he is a musician). The fact that he is a musician and I can sing a little often allows us to come up with some special sounds. I wanted to share this arrangement of “Time Is On My Side” that we did together with you. I just really love it. It just sounds so wistful to me. It’s short and sweet but I hope you enjoy it too!
So last night was the 500th episode of “The Soup” on E! (starring Joel McHale) and they decided to celebrate this milestone by performing the show LIVE! There were two live tapings for both the west coast and east coast at 10pm. So each coast got a different version of the show which is pretty cool! I went to the taping to watch my Soup family do their thing. I have been the announcer for the show for probably 7 years now (time flies!!) and for the past year and a half I have recorded the voice over for the show mainly from my home studio. It was such a treat to go to the set and see everyone in person. Joel McHale is SUCH a natural live!! He did such an amazing job! I missed the taping with B.J. Novak as a guest but I caught it later on my DVR and he was hilarious! I DID get to see Adam Carolla as a guest however, and his facial reactions to Joel were just perfect! The biggest surprise of the show for me was Lou Diamond Phillips as a guest. He opened the show on camera pretending to be ME!! Hahahahaha. He lip synced to my voice and boy did he work his face to look peppy and energetic, like the read I do for the show. My mouth LITERALLY dropped open when I saw that. No one from the show that I work with had told me so I was SHOCKED. But I found it incredibly funny (once the shock wore off) and Lou did my voice justice! After the show I approached him and confronted him about “trying to take my job.” I think I shocked him right back! He was kind enough to take a picture with me which I have included with this blog. It was such a fantastic night and I want to congratulate the entire staff on an amazing 500 episodes. I can’t wait for the next 500!
I LOVE youtube!! I haven’t seen this movie in forever. I play the little sister. How wonderful that it is up and I can watch it again. Ah, memories. Dot and Spot Magical Christmas

Arun Mehta contacted me from England to ask if I would give do an interview for his podcast for Hey Arnold fans. Hey Arnold was a cartoon I worked on for Nickelodeon and in it I played the role of Phoebe. Nickelodeon is re-airing the show as part of their “The 90s Are All That” block of programming which is bringing this amazing show to a whole new generation of animation fans. I hope I was interesting enough as I had no idea what the questions were before hand!
Thanks to Arun for all the work he did to give Hey Arnold fans some answers to their questions!
